Information regarding diversion of services required in Skelton, from Monday 13th April.
Diversion of Services 3, X3, 746 & 747 from Monday 13th April 2015
From Monday 13th April, Services 3, X3, 746 and 747 will be required to divert, due to a road closure in place on Green Road in Skelton.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of the closure, we will be unable to serve Skelton Green & Boosbeck with the services noted above for a period of four to possibly six weeks.
This work is being undertaken by Northen Gas Networks and the prohibition of buses on the bank between Skelton High Street and Skelton Green is due to the nature of the works.
Whilst these roadworks are in place, a shuttle service will operate between Skelton Green, Boosbeck & Lingdale and will connect with all planned departures on Services 3, X3 and 746/747.
Through tickets are available and connections will be met at Lingdale between the shuttle bus and the normal service vehicle. This may result in some slight difference to departure times for passengers in Skelton Green and Boosbeck.
Services 3, X3, 746 and 747 will operate via Stanghow Road to Lingdale direct.
Furthermore, there will be some small changes to bus stops in and around Skelton due to the diversion.
Buses towards Lingdale will not serve the stop outside of the Fire Station and will depart from the stop opposite the Co-op instead.
Buses towards Redcar will all depart from the stop outside of the Civic Centre on Coniston Road and not the stop outside of the Co-op.
Also, from Monday, there will be an evening shuttle that will connect with Local Link Services 707 and 708 at Lingdale too, but usage of this will be assessed going forward.
Please click the link below for a copy of the shuttle bus timetable.
More information is available from our drivers and local travel shops.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this short notice diversion, which is entirely beyond our control.
